1-Day Voodoo and Village Tour of Togo
Venture outside the Capital Lome on a full day guided driving, walking and sailing tour. This tour will give you a good sense of Togolese rural life and introduce you to the mysterious workings of the ancient African Voodoo. Your tour starts with a drive to Akodessewa Fetish Market, the largest fetish market in West Africa, to learn about the ancient Voodoo religion and its rituals. Then you'll continue your drive to Lake Togo along the coastal road. You will sail across the lake on a pirogue (traditional dugout canoe) to Togoville, the center for Voodoo practice in Togo and set out on a guided tour by a resident guide. Slave traders also once used Togoville as their point of departure for the Americas. After Togoville, you will visit the village of Agbodrafo on the shores of the Atlantic Coast (formerly called the Slave Coast) where an illegal slave trade once operated from the Wood Home or the La Maison des Esclaves.Itinerary
